The issue of strong and weak conferences has been discussed by us several times. But it appears that weak conferences are not the bottom line - there are bogus conferences as well. A message from in one of Carnegie Mellon mailing lists prompted me to search for an information about a quality of a specific conference. What I found was very interesting and to large extent not known to me. An information in anti-plagiarism blog is a useful starting point to investigate the issue further. Most interesting for me was the information about MIT SCIgen - a generator of good-looking but nonsense papers, which was used to check a number of bogus conferences.
